Slugs on the Roof Terrace.

We tried unsuccessfully to get a table in the Ristorante Alessio across the street and ended up eating here. When we were lead in, at first, we thought we made a mistake because the tables were empty. But as we were lead up the stairs, the place was very busy. The roof terrace was packed. The... read more

This was the only restaurant we patronized twice while in Rome. The first time we ate our meal on the roof top. Our group consisted of four ladies and we all enjoyed the food and service. I ordered the penne pasta with pesto sauce and the sauce was one of the best I tasted in Rome. We all enjoyed the... More

Stayed in Rome for a few days and kept on trying different restaurants just like me & my wife did in Venice & Florence. I ordered the penne with vodka & smoked fish sauce dish and my wife ordered the risotto with mushroom. The sauce in my penne order was a red tomato sauce with no vodka/alcohol smell or taste...

Pretty good food and friendly service. We ordered soup, cooked vegetable (quite bland), and seafood salad (I've had better but it's pretty good). Add sparking water and a glass of milk, the bill is 35€.

One of our favorite and friendly front desk person recommended the Ristorante Terme di Diocleziano to us one evening. He said, there are lots of good restaurants around but you should try the Ristorante Terme di Diocleziano since they have excellent food, good service and good prices too. My husband and I share our dinner, a good salad, a Grilled... More

It's an old Roman building that seems dark and empty as you enter, but all the activity is upstairs. There's an open patio on the second level that's bright and cheerful. The food was good and the ambiance very enjoyable. The wait staff was friendly and helpful; and the prices were not unreasonable.

From the outside this looks like a miniature pantheon or roundhouse/tower so we were expecting a circular terrace with some interesting views but... no such lick. The terrace was a rectangular space covered with retractable tarpaulin and some glimpses of the backs of apartments. The tables were very close to squeeze in as many as possible so not best for...

This restaurant used to be a spa used by the Romans. Fairly small, plenty of staff, very friendly, good food.

This restaurant is in an amazing old tower . The food was very good but not hot which did not spoil our enjoyment of it. The services was good and waiters very attentive. had a lot of local Italians and tourists which were equally welcomed. Would definately go back when next return to Rome.

It is not easy to excel in Rome but this restaurant is really something special! Take my advice: let the friendly waiters guide you in your choice of the menu. And the wines. They are friendly and respectful. I had a wonderful 3 course dinner. Not for tourists though: typically Italian. No tourist menu. But then again: all Italian food... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighborhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighborhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic center. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
